Christmas Teaching IdeasChristmas is almost here! So much to do both in the studio and at home this time of year. At my house, we are in the final stages of preparing for our new little boy to arrive – down to less than 4 weeks! We have a few posts & a neat present for y’all for Christmas we’re working on but today I wanted to share our previous posts with ideas for the Christmas season in case you haven’t seen them before.

Remember our neat Christmas recital printable program?  I love just entering student names and having a festive look to my studio program. We’ve done the work for you so check it out!

Sight reading can be a chore, but not with fun Christmas songs – check out our idea here to sneak in some sight reading while enjoying the holiday spirit with your students!

We’re getting down to the last few lessons before recitals and sometimes, that means playing the same piece way too many times… So mix it up with this fun Performance Practice Challenge free printable!

Feel free to comment below with your favorite teaching tricks & ideas during these busy December weeks. We’d love to hear how you bring the Christmas spirit into your students’ lessons!

We’ll be back soon with a few more fun ideas! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend & enjoyed shopping 😉
